FlatListed.com is a locally owned and operated real estate company serving the Moore, Richmond, Cumberland, Harnett, and Hoke county areas.
After years of practicing “traditional” real estate, we realized with the increased use of technology that the times have changed for how we practice real estate. Here in the 21st century, we are about efficiency, speed, and cost. This is how we are able to offer you these attractive options at such an affordable rate.
With advances in technology, real estate agents are able to do in one hour today, what would have taken ten times that years ago. This has led to the advent of “FlatListed.com” or “Discount MLS Listing Brokers” and real estate companies throughout the US that offer the similar services as traditional brokerages, with the resulting reduction in costs being passed on to you, the homeowner. Home sellers everywhere are retaining higher equity in their homes by refusing to pay high real estate commissions. We provide professional flat-fee MLS listing services and promise to save you money on the sale of your home.
Our service provides far greater exposure than traditional for sale by owner (FSBO) marketing and advertising efforts. Relying on the traditional marketing and advertising associated with a FSBO is limiting, at best. Also, it can be an expensive proposition. Ultimately you may find that most qualified buyers want or need the assistance of real estate brokers and agents. Thus, your property will be exposed to more qualified buyers through the MLS network accessed by Realtors.
Also, agents and brokers will feel more comfortable dealing with you knowing that their commissions are protected. Qualified buyers are those who have both a real motivation to buy and the financial ability to buy. The truly professional real estate agent will ensure that their buyers are pre-approved for financing before showing them homes in their area.
Research shows that nearly 50% of all home sellers start out trying to sell their property on their own. Although some homeowners are successful with FSBO, according to the latest National Association of Realtors (NAR) home seller survey, only 9% of sellers actually sell their home without exposure on the MLS. And many of them end up giving away their commission savings to the buyer to close the deal.
The MLS is a cooperative marketing system which allows professional Realtors® to share information about real estate for sale. It is the most powerful marketing tool for a homeowner to sell their home. Regardless of which company an agent works for, he or she has access to the same database through their local board of Realtors®.
We are offering you more options. If you use one of our "FlatListed.com" flat fee listing packages you only pay an upfront fee for us to list your property and we provide you the same marketing tools that professional REALTORs (like us) use.
We allow sellers to take advantage of the great exposure of MLS (Multiple Listing Service). Your MLS listing not only increases your exposure, it opens your home to a greater pool of buyers. It will provide an extra avenue of buyers who utilize real estate agents and typically stay away from traditional for sale by owner listings.
